Visions of Light and Space: The Radiant Constructions of Iole Allesandrini
Location: University House Wallingford
Wednesday April 17, 6:30 pm
Iole Allesandrini defies easy classification. Her works straddle the boundary between art and architecture, sculpture and installation. Her permanent, public works, like her recent re-do of the fountain at Westlake Park, have made her art accessible to a wide audience, few of whom are likely aware to the complex ideas and inspirations that inform her pieces. We’ll look at both her stand-alone sculptures and her public art, taking about the common impulses and challenges of taking her ideas to the streets.
